Have a cosy Christmas

As the weather gets colder and the holidays approach, it’s time to wrap up and get cosy. Thankfully, we’ve got the perfect recipe for a cosy Christmas at Princesshay…

Warm your hands

There’s nothing more warming than wrapping your hands around a piping mug of hot chocolate – especially when it’s bursting with festive flavours. Why not try a Millionaires Shortbread Hot Chocolate from Coffee #1 or a Hazelnut Crunch Hot Chocolate from Starbucks to kick off your cosy Christmas? Or if savoury is more your style, tuck into a steaming bowl of broth packed with crunchy veg and chicken, steak or tofu. Pull up a bench and try one of wagamama’s brand new hotpots.

Deck the halls

The Nordic tradition of hygge is all about bringing warmth, softness and light into the darkest days of the year, so treat your house to a cosy makeover. Head to Rituals or Molton Brown to pick up some divine scented candles to set the ambience, while Mooch has plenty of velvety cushions, silky throws and colourful blankets to deck your home with. Finally, don’t leave your dining table without some Christmas cheer – Next has some of the cosiest looking tableware we’ve ever seen, from pudding plates to gingerbread napkins!

Cosy clobber

Whether on Christmas Eve or Boxing Day, we all can’t wait to get tucked up at home in front of a film, so make sure you’re kitted from head to toe with cosiness. Fatface and Crew have woolly jumpers and loungewear for the whole family, while New Look and River Island have everything you need in the fluffy slipper department. If you’re venturing outside, head to Trespass for padded coats to protect you from the elements, while knitwear from Accessorize and Claire’s will keep your hands and ears toasty warm.

Sparkle and wonder 

We’ve really gone to town on cosy festive events this year at Princesshay! Once you’ve gazed in wonder at our sparkly new Christmas lights and visited our Charity trees, head over to our brand new Christmashay Market for unique crafts and gifts then swing by the Antler Inn to settle down with something mulled. And for the kids, don’t miss out on a magical visit to Santa’s Winter Workshop. Little ones can meet the man himself, plus they’ll leave with an extra special gift!
